Hi guys!

i'm sorry to say but i've got little to no knowledge when it comes to handling javascripts. i came here for some help on something.

right now i need a for Acrobat Reader 9 that allows you to add bookmarks to a PDF file...

i have read the help files and googled pretty much any related keyword i could think of and i always get answers on "adding bookmarks WHEN CREATING A PDF"... which is entirely different from what i needed which is "adding bookmarks to an already published PDF file" (i.e. i want to bookmark certain pages on an ebook i've been reading so that i don't have to start from page 1 each time i load the pdf")

the closest i've found to this is THIS

what that does is add Bookmark functions under the VIEW menu to "ADD" "GO TO" and "REMOVE BOOKMARKS"

the trouble with this code is that i always have to navigate through the Menu bar to get to the functions...

what i want is to be able to access these functions right clicking (CONTEXT MENU) to make things a lot easier...

i've tried to find a way to contact the author of the above script but it seems to be dated way back to 2004 and i couldn't find any email options...

your help on this code is greatly appreciated.

i've tried looking into the script myself and i couldn't get any more lost than i already am...

Code:
// bookmark_page.js, ver. 1.0
// visit: www.pdfhacks.com/bookmark_page/

// use this delimiter for serializing our array
var bp_delim= '%#%#';

function SaveData( data ) {
  // data is an array of arrays that needs
  // to be serialized and stored into a persistent
  // global string
  var ds= '';
  for( ii= 0; ii< data.length; ++ii ) {
    for( jj= 0; jj< 3; ++jj ) {
      if( ii!= 0 || jj!= 0 )
        ds+= bp_delim;
      ds+= data[ii][jj];
    }
  }
  global.pdf_hacks_js_bookmarks= ds;
  global.setPersistent( "pdf_hacks_js_bookmarks", true );
}

function GetData() {
  // reverse of SaveData; return an array of arrays
  if( global.pdf_hacks_js_bookmarks== null ) {
